The LASD Special Victim’s Bureau is investigating N. Fisher, a.k.a. “Detail,” in relation to fifteen charges of sexual assault. According to reports, the incidents are said to have happened between 2010 and 2018. In January of this year, detectives submitted the case to the LA District Attorney’s office for review. By the end of July, fifteen charges of sexual assault plus five additional felony-assault related charges were filed against him.
He was arrested in Stevenson Ranch on a felony arrest warrant and had his bail set at $6,290,000. The nature and number of allegations have investigators wondering if there are additional victims out there. Anyone who believes they may be or may know a victim is asked to call the LASD SVB at 877-710-5273.
Sexual battery (assault) is covered under California Penal Code 243.4 PC and is described as touching the intimate parts of another person against that person’s will, for the purposes of sexual gratification, arousal, or abuse. The crime is a “wobbler” in California, meaning it can be charged as either a misdemeanor or a felony depending on the circumstances of the case and the defendant’s prior criminal history.
Some examples of situations that may call for felony charges include:
- Slipping your hand into someone else’s underwear
- Being in a position of authority and convincing someone to let you touch their intimate parts
- Convincing a mentally ill person to engage in a sexual act in front of you
Some examples of situations that may call for misdemeanor charges include:
- Intentionally fondling a stranger’s breast without their permission
- Grabbing someone else’s butt without their permission
The punishments when facing misdemeanor charges include up to 1 year in county jail (depending on the circumstances), and a fine of up to $2,000 or $3,000 if the victim was employed by you.
Felony penalties include two to four years in California state prison and a maximum fine of $10,000.
